Rockies' Drew Stubbs slugs second homer in Game 1 of DH
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8:26 pm ET) Rockies outfielder Drew Stubbs smacked a two-run home run in his only at-bat in his team's 13-7 loss to the Diamondbacks in Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader.

Stubbs was called upon to pinch-hit in the eighth inning and delivered his second home run of the season; unfortunately, it only reduced his team's deficit to seven runs. The outfielder went 0 for 20 in April but is now 2 for 6 with two home runs in May.


Rockies' Nick Hundley slugs second homer in Game 1 of DH
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8:23 pm ET) Rockies catcher Nick Hundley went 2 for 3 with a home run and three RBI in his team's 13-7 loss to the Diamondbacks in Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader.

Hundley's hitting streak is now up to 10 games and includes five multihit performances. He picked up his first RBI with a fifth-inning sacrifice fly and added another on a solo home run in the seventh. In the eighth, he knocked a double deep to center field to tally his third RBI for the game, which is a season high for the catcher.

Hundley has hit .343/.390/.529 with two home runs and eight RBI in 70 at-bats.

The Diamondbacks were able to jump out to a 9-0 lead by the end of the fourth inning, but Morneau was able to put his team on the board with a solo home run in the fifth before adding an RBI on a double in the bottom of the ninth to bring home the 20th and final run of the game.

Morneau has hit .291/.322/.453 with three home runs and nine RBI.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8:13 pm ET) Diamondbacks shortstop Nick Ahmed went 1 for 3 with two walks and two runs scored in his team's 13-7 win over the Rockies in Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader.

Ahmed has had trouble finding offense early in the season, picking up just eight hits in 57 at-bats during April, but he was able to reach base safely multiple times Wednesday like almost everyone else in the Diamondbacks' lineup. Ahmed has hit .152/.253/.167 with four runs scored.


Diamondbacks' A.J. Pollock reaches five times in Game 1 of DH
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Pollock wasn't able to pick up any RBI in the high-scoring game but did just about everything else, scoring runs in the third, fourth, sixth and eighth innings. He drew just six walks in April and hadn't had an extra-base hit in almost three weeks before Wednesday's barrage. Pollock has hit .297/.363/.385 with one home run, eight RBI, 18 runs scored and five stolen bases.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(8:08 pm ET) Four teams are in pursuit of signing catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia following his release from the Marlins, according to The Boston Globe

The teams interested in Saltalamacchia are the Mariners, Orioles, Royals and Diamondbacks. The Red Sox, a team Saltalamacchia has played previously for, are not looking to acquire him at this time. 

Saltalamacchia's season is off to about as bad of a start as possible from the plate. Through the first month of the year, he holds a slash line of .069/.182/.207.

The Marlins were interested in trading Saltalamacchia but released him when one never materialized.
